STUMP uses an environment variable FOLDLINES that determines whether long lines in article submissions are folded at column 75.  It would be better if there were the option of wrapping rather than folding lines (such as by piping the output through fmt, though this isn't POSIX).  Also would be nice to be able to control the column at which lines are wrapped/folded, and to be able to set this behaviour on a per-newsgroup basis.

This is a wishlist item but is somewhat pressing as Google Groups, which is what a great number of people use to post to Usenet, no longer wraps long lines in article submissions.
